Annette O'Toole (Edna Price, episode 2) played Beverly Marsh in 1990's Stephen King's It (1990). In the Book 11.22.63 Jake meets Beverly and Richie from It in Derry which in the series is replaced by Holden. See more »
The main premise of the show is that the protagonists don't know for sure that Oswald was the lone gunman hence the long stakeout. However, given that going back 'resets' everything the quickest way to ascertain Oswald's involvement would be to shoot Oswald, go back to 2016 and see if Kennedy survived. If he was still assassinated then going back again would 'undo' Oswald's unnecessary death and Jake could concentrate on finding the real assassin.
But Oswald only returns to the US in 62. So it will always take at least 2 years to complete the test. See more »
Jake Epping, a high school teacher, travels back in time by a time portal, revealed to him from his friend, Cafe owner Al Templeton, the portal are in the cafe backroom closet, and makes it possible to time travel, but only from the present day and back to the 1960s — specifically, October 21st. Dying of cancer, Al asks Jake to travel back to the 1960s and prevent the assassination of John F. Kennedy. Time travel stories can be a tricky thing, but 11.22.63 sets up the rules clearly and immediately. By the end of the opening episode, viewers should be fairly well acquainted with what Jake needs to do, why Al can't do it anymore, and the steps needed to get there. It all sounds completely ridiculous ("go back in time and stop the assassination of JFK!"), but 11.22.63 finds the right balance in Jake between disbelief and an earnest desire to try it anyway. The time travel isn't the mystery — not yet. Instead, the show pivots immediately into a glossy 1960s thriller, peppered with some of King's trademark horror.
I only bad thing to say about this series are that I want more I did not want it to end, it is simply a fantastic series.
